Squirrels, opossums, raccoons, and skunks become pests on occasion, most especially if they find or create ways to enter and nest is our attics, crawlspaces, or other structural spaces. In these cases, it is first necessary to trap and remove the adult animals. Then, any young need to be removed and the area cleaned out and sanitized. And finally, the area needs to be sealed to exclude the animals from future entry.
Wild animals of this type are often caught in cage-style traps, which are the most humane. In Washington State trapped raccoons must be euthanized in order to prevent the spreading of disease. Our process for this is quick and inflicts no pain on the animal.
All of our wildlife control technicians are fully trained and licensed by the state of Washington.
Raccoons are becoming increasingly problematic in Seattle and the Puget Sound. There has been a growing number attacks on pets from raccoons in the past year. Also raccoons carry diseases such as rabies and roundworm and if they gain entry into your attic or crawl space they can destroy insulation and electrical wiring.
Despite their cuteness and charm, squirrels can become a serious problem, causing thousands of dollars in damage to your home.
Bats are not an uncommon pest for Seattle area residents. There are 17 species of bats in Washington state, but the most common in this area is the little brown bat. These bats enter the attics of homes when the female looks for a place to breed. Once bats establish residency in an attic they do not leave on their own accord. Future generations of those bats will continue to return until they are excluded from the building.
